Kairos Inside @ Avery Mitchell
North Carolina and Avery Mitchell Correctional Institution have strict rules and regulations for entering the prison. These conditions apply to everyone who enters the institution including staff, volunteers, visitors, and vendors.
All personnel must be able to clear both the metal detector and the cell sensor. If you have a medical device that sets off either detector, you must present documentation from a doctor identifying the device and where it is located. If you cannot clear the detectors, it is up to the Officer in Charge (OIC) as to whether you are allowed to enter or not. Kairos volunteers WILL NOT CHALLENGE THE DECISION OF THE OIC.
Everyone must present a picture ID; volunteers (i.e. Team members) must also present a current blue card. No volunteers are allowed to enter if they forget their card or if it is expired.
Clothing must be suitable. No open-toed shoes, sandals, or flip-flops. No tank tops or spaghetti strap tops. No clothing that is see through or has any obscene language. No spandex or other type of tight fitting clothing.
In the past several situations have occurred that need special note:
